Bledsoe was fined $10,000 by the National Basketball Association for that tweet, McDonough told AZCentral.com on Sunday.

Bledsoe averaged more than 20.0 points and 6.0 assists per game in each of the last two seasons with the Suns, including career highs in points (21.1) and assists (6.3) per game last season.

Monroe is averaging 6.8 points and 5.0 rebounds in five games this season.

Milwaukee's first-round pick will convey to the Suns in 2018 if in the range of 11-16 overall, in 2019 if in the range of 4-16, in 2020 if in the range of 8-30 and in 2021 will be unprotected if it has not yet been conveyed. The first-rounder is lottery protected.
